Using a PS3 controller on a PC

6 replies 327 views Edited Jun 20, 2008

I know that you can charge a PS3 controller on PC, but my computer actually recognizes it as a controller.  Can you use the PS3 controller to play PC games.  Like the PC version of Oblivion?

 

Thanks.

Yes you can with, but you would need to download third party drivers. Here are some details on how to do so.

You may just want to try and perform a search. Google is also nice. Yes it is possible.

 

Apologies if that sounds a little harsh... it's in the tone, not the context
